The buildings surrounding this square is beautiful and made me think I was in Germany instead of France. There's lots to see, including the spot nearby where Joan of Arc was burned at the stake.

A walk down this street will take you back to another time and place! There are structures/houses that have been standing for centuries; some look like they are leaning precariously. The walkways are narrow and uneven, and paved with cobblestones. Very charming!

It's interesting to walk down this street. On an old wall near the cathedral there is a plaque that says something about the inquiry ordered by Charles VII into Joan of Arc's trial several years earlier. I like the courtyard outside of the cathedral--it has a statue of St. Romain.
